  • You skipped on how to save the actual message. I tried save as but it didn’t change the name of the email I want to use.

  • Just to save everyone some time. Go to File, then click "Automatic Replies (Out of Office)." This will allow you to create your going away message and when you want it activated. There used to be a "out of office assistant," but this is pretty much the same thing.
